This book is almost a manual for the recovering of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood as well as for the rejection of that which is not Biblical in that matter. The book has chapters on exegetical and theological Studies, Studies from related disciplines like Church history, biology, psychology, sociology and law and contributions on how to apply and implicate it all in family and church. Every chapter, each written by another evangelical author, is so full of rich information that it gives the impression as if all possible questions have been answered.
Too often, people use one verse or another to justify their positions on just about everything. One word of caution - if you are dead set against Piper and Grudem from the beginning, this book won't change your mind. It's not supposed to. Rather, for those who may not see the issue as relevant in our day and age, this book should motivate you to look into the issue more and leave with the opinion that the roles of men and women within ministry are in fact very important, biblically based, and evident within the Bible.

John Piper, Wayne Grudem, and a host of others offer a defense of biblical marriage: one man and one woman, reflecting Christ and his church. 50 Crucial Questions About Manhood and Womanhood. 2006, Crossway Books. Piper and Grudem have achieved a commendable breadth of subject area supported by clear, specific, and precise treatment-all of which consistently make the case for ‘biblically balanced male leadership’ in home, church, and society. Michael G. Maudlin, Discipleship Journal. The best book in print today on this subject.
Enter Wayne Gruden and his book. I was drawn to his book by yet another book "What's The Difference" by John Piper. His writings led me to more serious in depth works on the subject during which I came across the name Gruden. Several speakers at a conference in Dallas, Texas, held March 2022, 2000, addressed those new challenges and new insights as they related to manhood and womanhood in marriage.
Crossway Books published the book in 1991 for the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW). CBMW, an international interdenominational evangelical Christian organisation, has a board and staff committed to a view of gender roles they dub complementarian.
New preface included.

What I like about the book is it doesnt simply assume that a 1950s view is correct
